The traditional Navratna Mixture

Composed of nuts, raisins and lentils, usually combined with deep-fried gram flour noodle sticks and/or fried cornflakes to provide an interesting contrast in texture and flavour – it is protein packed and absolutely crunchy and delicious! Making this at home, if at all possible, is reserved for absolutely special occasions, because traditionally, all the ingredients are deep-fried in oil – which can be considered a slightly dangerous endeavor as you are attempting to deep-fry a soaked and/or boiled lentil, full of moisture and a tendency to ‘pop’.
